1. Not great right now. My sister and I are having to make a lot of difficult decisions regarding the care of our mother. 

2. Pete Davison, a former GamePro editor, does "A to Z" channels on various classic platforms like the Atari 8-bit and the C64. He also does Evercade as well as a channel where he tackles various games from various other platforms.

3. I'd take the knife, as I could probably take a few hits from the bat, but the knife would probably incapacitate me a lot more if I got stabbed.

4. After a day in the hot Arizona sun, you don't really want to know.

5. The only things I get at McDonald's are Chicken McNuggets and fries, or occasionally hot cakes and sausage or bacon. Chicken McNuggets are my favorite fast-food chicken nuggets, whereas if I want a hamburger, I'd rather go to Wendy's, In-n-Out, or Whataburger. My favorite hamburgers are from Red Robin.

6. Stage Select: Top 5 playable female characters. I'm old enough to still remember when Ms. Pac-Man was pretty much it for playable females, and when Samus being a woman was a huge shock. 

7. Something Zelda-related, as Zelda is and will always be my favorite game series. When I was a kid, I even used an Atari 8-bit program called Adventure Creator to make an extremely abstract "Zelda 3," three years bafore A Link to the Past came out. Needless to say, my version didn't really measure up.

  1. 1. How are you doing?
  2. I'm OK.  Could be better, but probably could be a lot worse.  Just have to count my blessings.  That's all I can do.
  3. 2. What are some YouTube recommendations?
  4. I recommend "Slopes Game Room."  Especially the "Complete History Of..." whatever game he does.  I especially especially recommend his Complete History of Pac-Man videos, because I helped make them!
  5. 3. In a fight to the death with someone your size and build you have the choice of a 6 inch knife or an aluminum bat. Which weapon do you choose, knowing that the one you don’t pick goes to your opponent?
  6. I couldn't fight my way out of a paper bag.  But in some video games, you can swat the knife away with a bat, so I'd pick the bat.  But I'd rather just make friends with whoever I was fighting.
  7. 4. What do you smell like (or think you smell like)?
  8. After work I probably smell like plumbing supplies.  But overall I'd like to think I'm odorless.
  9. 5. We’re going to McDonald’s; what do ya want?
  10. I want a Happy Meal with a Pac-Man toy.  And have it served to me by the McDonald's Moon Man!
  11. 6. What’s YOUR idea for a Stage Select?
  12. So since you haven't done one in a while, I'm not sure what you do in your Stage Select topic.  Is it just a general topic to talk about?  How about your favorite cereal?  Favorite video game based cereal?  And what video games would you LIKE to have as a cereal?
  13. And feel free to steal topics from my podcast, too.  I just did one on our parents favorite games and even had a special guest!
  14. https://anchor.fm/pizza-pixel-podcast
  15. 7. What video game fan fiction would you write (if you did)?
  16. Probably one with all Namco characters.  Or a Final Fantasy story, since I think I can come up with a better story than Square can.  I've even had a couple of dreams about that.  One dream I was working for Namco, but mixed in with regular human employees were Namco video game characters.  I talked with the receptionist, Reiko Nagase, as well as Taizo Hori (Dig Dug), and walked past Gil from Druaga and Taki from Soul Calibur.  But when I got to my cubicle, I thought to myself, "Wait, what do I do here again?" And then I woke up.  I also had a pretty elaborate dream about me being in a Final Fantasy game (I was a White Mage).  I think I wrote a blog about that on 1up.com a long time ago!
